Thanks guys :)

 

I wanted to try something a little different for a change and thought I'd take a bash and putting together a cheap and cheerful video on my thoughts on the new Primaris Armour. I might try and use videos to put together some tutorials or maybe miniature reviews if it goes well.

 

I don't think Spielberg has anything to worry about just yet...

@Doghouse: I agree with the gist man; pick a thing you like and do it.

As for doing videos, there's plenty of good tops online for audio/ video editing and good free open source software to do it.
I'd turn up the recording volume/ compress the audio to bump up the output volume... it was little quiet

You know you play too much 40k when, after a 'good night' with your significant other, you perform a sweeping advance instead of letting her go to sleep. After you finish, you declare it a massacre, and attempt to consolidate D6 feet towards the shower and/or kitchen.

Nice one cheers for the advice, it's greatly appreciated and I will definitely give it a try . thumbsup.gif

 

To be honest I've no idea how any of this video making works, my technological know how extends about as far as operating the toaster. I botched it together using Movie Maker and a headset. Being a Youtuber isn't something I'd really be into but figured I might as well give it a go because I get a lot of messages from people asking about conversion and GS advice and I could see this being a valuable tool in that respect...if I can figure it out. I did quite enjoy voicing some rambles though rather than relying on text.

I'm looking into doing the same in the near future with the intent of helping some folks get more comfortable with GS by making a few vids.

Definitely a good idea mate! :tu:

 

I think there is a lot of people that may well enjoy sculpting but are put off because it sounds scary, I think the more people that are willing to clear away the smoke and get them started the better.

Maybe I learn better seeing it done than reading about it, but a lot of the written sculpting tutes I've gone through over the years really didn't help me that much. Some general tips have been helpful, but as an example, it took me forever to get a handle on smoothing out GS and I see a lot of people struggling with the same and I really don't know how useful writing out how I do it would be much help.

Your best bet is put together a video. Being shown rather than purely explained to is one of the best ways to teach others hands down.

I don't have much in the way of a video camera though.

What about taking pictures and then narrating over them? A bit like I did with the tutorial in this thread but making a slide show and talking over it?

 

I think even some basic explaining of tools and putties might help some if it de-mystifies it and might give you some practice in case you do get a video capable camera.

Aye, I think more video on Green Stuff techniques and tips would be fantastic.
There is stuff out there, but a lot of it misses out the basic principals that experienced sculptors probably take for granted, but for new folk make such a significant difference.

On the video front, I just read things online and watched YouTube videos to learn how to do video/ audio editing and such.
I got some basic tips for y'all to get you started if you're interested (a lot of it wont make sense until your doing it mind XD)

Download Audacity (it's a free piece of open source software).
You can record and edit your Audio in this program to improve the quality.

 

Basic Audio editing using Audacity

  • Compress audio:
    Select Track > Effects > Compressor
    Threshold -20bd
    Ratio 6:5:1
    Compress based on peaks
  • Remove noise:
    Select some noise (sound of mouse clicks for example) on track > Effects > Noise removal > Get noise profile
    Select whole track > Effects > Noise removal > ok
  • Adjust volume;
    Select Whole Track > effects > amplify >Adjust as needed  > ok
  • Export as .MP3

 

You can then pop it in to your video editing software(I'd recommend Adobe Premier if possible, but window Movie Makers does the job tbf)

As for Video, you can use almost anything to record the video; iphones have a really good quality video these days, given the right lighting, just make sure whatever you use you keep it steady with a tripod.

Webcams are also good, so long as they're decent (I use a Logitech C920 HD pro 1090p... it's relatively inexpensive and quite good quality).
If you're recording via webcam just download some free recording software. OBS is good as it allows you to stream the process too, if you so wish.
If you decided to use obs, I'd recommend downloading another program called Handbrake. It allows you to convert the file type of the recording.
Some video editing software wont allow you to edit the files that OBS exports otherwise.




Very basic starting point, but it'll get you off the ground and you can kick on from there.

Yep, I can recommend Audacity as well. As far as free audio editing software goes, it's one of the best. If you have access to premiere pro or similar even better, but for stuff like this it's not mandatory. You can go a long way with recording on smartphone and then working with movie maker.

 

As DarkHazz13 mentioned, a tripod will be necessary such as those small, flexible ones, which are fortunately pretty cheap. Depending on the level of details you want to capture, a macro lens for your phone (which is attached either with rubber band or a clip, nothing complicated) might be a good idea, too.  

 

Never underestimate the effects of good lighting, but since you guys know how to take good picture that shouldn't be an issue. smile.png

Cheers for the advice guys, I will look into that, I'll probably have another bash at it at some point. I'd like to do one on these Blood Angels.
